Hello, first and foremost I’d like to thank you for starting this donation campaign. As a daily user and HTTPS evangelist, I hope the community will hear your call.
I have a question regarding your promotional video though. At 01:20 it states that 200 000$ are required each month to keep Let’s Encrypt operational. This made me wondering: how does LE spend this money ?
Of course “contributions go towards operational and engineering staff, hardware and the software, and general operating expenses needed to securely and reliably issue and manage many millions of certificates.” but we — the community & donors — don’t have any figures, as far as I know, to better understand how it works.
So, for the sake of curiosity and transparency, can we have access to this information ?
Thank you and count me on the donors list =)
